: on the one hand, you have two cliches. one is, seeing is believing. and in this case, i don't think seeing is believing, if she's guilty of this brutal murder. i mean, just look at her. appearances can be deceiving, maybe that's the other cliche. when the prosecution rested in the capital murder trial of jodi arias, the defense argued that her life should be spared and it shouldn't be murder 1 wrap because the state had failed to prove premeditation. the prosecutor scoffed at that notion, pointing out that among other things, the defendant -- that pretty -- you know, sweet-looking, young lady there brought a gun and a knife to the poor man, travis alexander -- the victim's home. but what i don't understand was why she killed him so savagely. what the hell was going on in her mind, 27 knife wounds, slit throat, gunshot to the head and all the rest of it. she looks so innocent. >> like i said, appearances, obviously deceiving. what was it about jodi? what did my next guest see in her that is so disturbed them that they wanted them out of their home. jacob and holly medford are here. it wasn'

have gone over the world. it is almost a cliche where we go, as reporters, you had to the dump. there's a documentary made about the dump in egypt. i went to the smoking mountain in the philippines and as reports were part of the pushing the regime out because of inequities they showed. and to see this in my own country? shocking. we have an army of people who grew through the garbage. i still get chills when i think about it. >> thank you for being with us. the award winning directing to go, their latest on "redemption" is academy award domination in the documentary short division.

? there was no guarantee we were going to defeat hitler or that britain was going to survive. it has become a cliche, but it has not been said here tonight, so i will be the one to say. my favorite quote from winston churchill, the americans can always be. -- depended on to do the right thing, after they had exhausted every other possibility. the demographics are irreversible and will ultimately drive the right and the left to the reality that we have to make some kind of changes. >> you are our realist. how do you think this ends? >> of course, the honest answer is i don't know. what i worry about, and i really appreciate the reminder of history, because i think is really important, and we forget history too often. what i worry about is the trust deficit. if you look at every institution, business, congress, sports figures, the church -- it doesn't matter what it is. no one trusts the institutions that operate in our country. and congress is not doing so well. >> why does that matter? it matters because, for a society to be vibrant and grow and take risks and innovate, we not only need to like each

exercise. it's a lifestyle change. it's kind of cliche, but it truly is. >> so there's no shortcuts. >> no, there aren't. look, it's very simple. it's less going in and more exercise. >> is it a challenge, though, every day? >> oh, yeah. >> but have you changed your lifestyle? >> i've changed, but it's still work. again -- and my wife, deborah roberts, who's on 20/20 and abc, she's a person who eats, but she's a size 4. she works out. she runs. there's a certain mindset, i think, that naturally thin people have that those of us who are not don't have. we were at the chicago airport a few weeks ago coming home, and we're walking down one of the terminals. and we're walking by a mcdonald's, and i went, ooh, mcrib is back. she didn't even see that sign, but i saw mcrib is back. >> probably some beautiful picture. >> my old friend, mcrib. hello, mcrib, i've missed you so. >> what i think is fun is that you actually use d food to woo your then friend into being your fiancee. >> deborah was going off to do the olympics and asked me -- look, we're friends. she's a beautiful woman. we're friends.

right, and i think that falls in the phase zero. you have to have skip in the game, i know it's a cliche, but if you're not there present, then the asians question extraordinarily why you're going to come in when the stakes get much higher, and they don't even need to think out to the existential question of soviet -- chinese icbms just hoping for the good old days hoping things were much clearer, chinese icbms raining down on them and does the nuclear umbrella still hold? as you point out, we've already been doing offshore balancing even while being present because we've had the filipinos, the japanese come to us in these territorial disputes and say are you backing us up, and what are you doing? the administration's response has been we take no position on sovereignty issues, we want to see the status quo maintained, but it's up to you to solve it. now i think, ironically, the right position. it's not for us to defend ya pap's territory, but it is for us to understand how the balance of power in the region is changing, and by not reacting we are changing the actions of our allies. and

's make an clich if you don't mind. >> kneal franklin, director of law enforcement in prohibition. we hear a lot about leadership. steve said something about leadership and since you talked about this as we have no leadership there is this an opportunity for the president, and what is the president's latitude? i know the executive branch enforcement but what is the president's latitude, and what can he do, what can the white house do and what should he do? i'm hoping these answers get to him. >> let's go to the gentleman. we also have a couple tweets. >> i'm with the governing magazine. i want to go back to the broad federalism issue which i talked to several people that said as much as jonathan, that between gay marriage, the affordable care act and marijuana were kind of redefining federalism in a lot of ways or we could be. so i wanted to ask you and i know this is intentional, but what are the potential ramifications for the system of government depending on how the various the dates are put out? >> i love how we saved a little questions for the end. >> ashley from l.a. is asking how m
